Los Angeles - Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win the best director award from the Directors Guild of America on Saturday with her Iraq war thriller The Hurt Locker, a film gathering awards momentum ahead of the Oscars.

The winner of the Guild's top award has gone on to take the best director Oscar all but six times in the last 61 years.

Oscar nominations will be announced next Tuesday and modestly budgeted The Hurt Locker is expected to garner several nods, including best film and best director.

Bigelow beat out her former husband James Cameron, who had won the Golden Globe for best director this month for his mega-budget blockbuster Avatar.

The Hurt Locker tells the story of a US military bomb squad that defuses explosives amid the fighting and insurgents. Many critics consider the film to be the best portrayal of the Iraq war since it began in 2003.
